About

Although Rootie’s did not invent the buffalo-style chicken wing, it sure went a long way to perfect this culinary delight. Award winning, authenticity counts as the tradition lives on in Louisville with Rootie’s arrival from Buffalo, New York and Coconut Creek, Florida. What sets Rootie’s apart from the rest? Rootie’s award winning, nationally renowned signature charcoal-grilled barbecued chicken wings made with, of course, Rootie’s Famous Gourmet Barbecue Sauce. It is uniquely thick, hickory smoked and spicy. Rootie’s is also known for its famous gourmet blue cheese dressing and dip. And now, Rootie’s is proud to announce our barbecue sauce is now a Kentucky Proud product. Click here to find where to purchase.
